Target 1 "HERO" monster you control; send it to the Graveyard, also, after that, if it left the field by this effect, Special Summon 1 "Masked HERO" monster from your Extra Deck with the same Attribute that the sent monster had when it was on the field (its original Attribute, if face-down).

Evaluation

RatingA-

Pros

  • Great way to summon a powerful monster.
  • Being a Quick-play spell gives you lots of timings to activate this card.

Cons

  • Requires a Hero monster on the field to activate, otherwise a dead card in your hand.
  • A Hero can only change into a Masked Hero of the same attribute.

Tips

Anki OTK

(This OTK is only possible because of a bug that doesn't half Anki's attack when he attacks directly with his effect and Titan Showdown is active.)
Use Cosmic Cyclone to banish a spell/trap card and reduce your LP to make Titan Showdown active, then used masked change to special summon Masked HERO - Anki. Anki is able to attack your opponent directly and because of Titan Showdown he will deal 5600 damage. If your opponent does not control any spell/trap card for you to use Cosmic Cyclone on, you can turn on self-chain. First activate Masked Change on your HERO and then use Cosmic Cyclone on Masked Change, you will still be able to summon Anki with your LP reduced for Titan Showdown.

Extra attacks

You can use Masked Change on an Extra deck Masked Hero you control to special summon another copy of himself from the Extra deck. Use this during the battle phase to gain extra attacks. Masked Hero Anki can do this most efficiently. Attack with your DARK Hero monster, activate Masked Change to special summon Masked Hero Anki and then let Anki destroy a monster. Anki will let you search a Masked Change from your deck, which you can use on him to special summon another Anki ready to attack. Repeat till your opponent runs out of monster.

Masked Hero

Here is a list of masked hero monsters that can be summoned with Masked Change.

Multiple monsters

Drilldark lets you special summon another monster when it's summoned, this can let you use Mask Change on one of them without leaving your vulnerable to cards like Enemy Controller. Use Drilldark's effect to special summon Destiny HERO - Celestial so you can use its effect when it's in the graveyard. Vyon can also be pretty good since you can use its effect to send Destiny HERO - Malicious from your deck to the grave, then activate it from the grave to special summon another Malicious from your deck, which thins your deck as well as letting you use Mask Change using your deck as a resource.

Return from the graveyard

Decider's effect lets you return a Destiny HERO monster from your grave at the end of the turn. This can let you use Mask Change on him after he attacks to return Decider back to your hand at the end of your turn.

The heck is with the mask change. There is a combo of 5 attacks and three of them is 2800. I don't know if this is balance but the only deck i can use against it is spell bound silence.

So I can not chain and use my second floodgate trap hole after changing the mask? (no option for it) I hate Anki decks with passion, tier 2 lol

the reason is that u miss the timing to use floodgate. Cause u can't activate cards in a middle of a chain so first is summon then is the effect of ur first floodgate

I think you are trying to chain Floodgate to Mask Change?

You cannot do that, Floodgate can only respond to a summon, and using Mask Change is not a summon. You have to wait until Anki hits the field THEN you should be able to use Floodgate.

This crap or Anki should be once per turn...

The fact that is says once per turn instantly makes it way more balanced.

No, because it will kill any other Masked Hero deck...

Anki semi-limited to 2 would solve the problem. If you can deal with the 1st Anki then you're guaranteed safe from OTK and you'll have a bigger chance to make a comeback

Limiting this card is fine as long as they give us Mask Change II in exchange.

Same. I’ve opened at least 100 by now and I’ve gotten every masked hero twice at least but not a single “masked change” spell.

Mask Cancer, I do love seeing them manage to pull all of these out their ass while my modest and straightforward deck bricks.

Not to mention "what is this trap thing you're doing? Silly goose, MASK CHANGE!! Oh you had two? MASK CHANGE!! Mask change all the things."

"Modest and straightforward deck." That's a weird way to call normal monsters beatdown deck lol.
